Not available in 2022 and 2023. Selected Collection as Well as Fertile Seeds---100 Tubers-7 Plus Varieties The Best Culinary Selections Easy to Grow and Process- Spring Shipment Only-Unavailable during the winter months but possible to preorder to ship in the spring in March and April. Limited quantity.
The seeds offered are 100 seeds of the variety Shiawassee. Shiawassee seedlings are almost always long slender tubers that can reach up to a foot long which are easy to clean. It is a short season variety from the most northern of its range in Michigan.
The tubers collected are from the best culinary selections available from types that are clumpy in habit and are easy to clean. They include both the types developed at OIKOS TREE CROPS as well as other cultivated selections developed overseas over the course of the last 100 years or so. The following varieties will be used for this collection: Starwhite Cluster, Weisse Truffle, Spindel, Drago, Dwarf Sunray, Topstar, Supernova, Urodny and others. If a certain variety is short, I will add others to this collection based on yield and availability when I am shipping. At least 50 tubers will be sent and labeled separately before packing. These truly are some of the best varieties available on the market today and make growing and using sunchokes much more accessible to a wider audience. This collection could easy produce over 500 plants of all types. Now that's a lot of artichokes!!!
